Slower than yesterday's gravy
Like watching paint dry.
maybe invest in some decent 21st century software......
i was a monthly contributor.......until i see some “investment” in the infrastructure i will not contribute 1 more red cent.............
And, here I thought FR was slow/down was because of the heavy load - because of the AZ shootings..............
I agree....I think it is time that FR start allowing advertising to help defray the costs associated with such a demanding website. Maybe banner ads like Drudge would help.
Then the first phone call to make is to Oracle. Get those guys in-house to build a massive, lightning fast, database.
Unless something happens FR will quickly lose. Most of us that love FR hate the problems, but if a good alternative pops up it is human nature to move on, and it will be more than difficult to get those lost back.
Well, I can say that there are definitely two things that will never happen. 1) Banner ads. 2) Oracle.
And a third is a total replacement. Don’t have the financial wherewithal.
To those who wish to leave because of it, see ya. If FR dies, that’s that.
In the mean time, John is pulling his hair out trying to find the problem. And I’m sure he eventually will. Always has. Always will.
wow.....way to show leadership......guess we know now why FreeRepublic is going down the toilet......sad......
Jim, I luv ya , man...Just like Rush you were blessed with a gift, but this time you are dead wrong....
FR is and remains the best darn website of its sort.
Sure it’s frustrating when it’s wiped out, especially on news days, but there’s no better website out there like this.

Very good responses now at the moment...
Is it really growing? The volume of posts has decreased considerably since the 2008.
Still here but ready to give up. Takes forever to load and often times out. Frustrated.
Awwww it’s just slow......:o)
John will get err done Jim !
Patience isn’t just a little quaker girl !
Already back to faster mode on FR from here in the Texas Panhandle !
Stay Safe and ignore the “gimmie I want lets go’s”.... !
Is it really growing? The volume of posts has decreased considerably since the 2008.............................................................So has the quality, over half of them are from either the religion forum or the anti mormon threads.
A lot of antifreepers and banned folks tried and they were pale imitations often filled with bitter people....not all.......having banned a year over amnesty fight here I am familiar with alt sites........fresno herds cats well enuff and I hope they figure this out
